Magic Portals

by Lorna Kerr

Alasdair Gray was an artist and writer who created books, paintings murals prints and poems.

When Alasdair was a child he was fascinated with imaginary places from books. He loved reading and looking at pictures as a way to escape into magical worlds.

Books and pictures can become portals that can transport us anywhere if we use our imagination. For this activity we will be drawing the outside of a portal and within in your very own imaginary world, so let your imagination run free!
